Bravo’s Top Chef revealed earlier this year they were filming the 16th season in Kentucky. Lexington, Louisville, and Lake Cumberland were among the cities selected to host the events. One of the episodes was taped inside Rupp Arena on Tuesday,  June 12.

Driving by Rupp Arena at lunch time, it was evident that something was going on as lines of fans dressed in blue and white waited patiently to get in the historic venue.

As for what happened inside the arena, all we can say is Padma, Tom, Graham, and a few special guest judges were enjoying great food prepared by incredible chefs. Anything else can only be found out by tuning in to the 16th season of Bravo’s Top Chef.
